    I decided to take the Tacoma and the girlfriend out on an easy ride threw New River Canyon. The trail rating was supposedly a 2/5 but i would rate it about a 3.5 due to 4wd being mandatory for the steep hills and switchbacks. Also much of the trail is washed out. I was extremely lucky my girlfriend knew how to spot due some spots being rather tricky.

    Enjoy the Pictures

    Started out right of the I-17 on Table Mesa road

    Looks like fun. Not to be too anal retentive about the trail rating but a AZ rating of a 3.5/5 trail is challenging 4x4 and would come with a recommendation of lift, lockers, and sliders... maybe Rug Road or a bad day on the Coke Ovens. It's hard to imagine New River being that difficult.

    Did this trail last year with a prerunner. Needed the locker but 2wd got us through. I look at anything over a rating of 3 as possible body damage.
